How to draw a chickadee in flight

Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the chickadee. Draw two ovals that will help to define places for its head and body. Draw a line, which will act as the center of its beak.

Step 2

Draw guidelines for the birds neck and tail.

Step 3

Define the places for the legs, wings and mouth of the chickadee.

Step 4

Mark off the shapes of the wings and beak of the chickadee.

Step 5

Add the eye, tail, legs and feathers of the bird.

Step 6

Outline the shapes of the feathers and toes. Work on the figure, paying special attention to detail.

Step 7

Contour the chickadee, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail and add clouds. Erase all guidelines.
